    oh... great...
    i haven't overclocked it, the card runs on its basic preferences. i only download the updates and play. so i guess its the voltage or the heating but overheating wasn't an issue till now and its been nearly a year... maybe the cooler is dying? how can i check the voltage? i don't even know what should be normal...

    thanx for the help but the problem is worse than the dust... the fan is/was broken and smaller than it should be and can't be changed to a better one thanks to powercolor...and warranty is over so i have to buy a new one...i hate that company...
    thanks for the help again!

Hey,

I'm sorry the video card has a hardware problem, have you overclocked it?

the card froze and stoped responding to the commands from the driver. so it had to reset.

This can happen if the card is damaged, by overclock, or the clocks are too high, voltage too low or too high, this is all related to overclocking.

But this can also be caused by overheating.

    Ok, nevermind the voltage.. thats just if you overclock, overclockers adjust the voltage to get higher speeds from the card..



    Nevermind that.



    You can open the case of the computer, first unplug all cables.

    have a look at the fan, if its covered in alot of dust, use a vacuum cleaner to **** out the dust. then you can power on the computer again, you could look at the fan and see if it works properly..



    it will probably rotate slowly when you are starting windows, some fans only go to full speed when there is enough heat on the video card.

Something is getting heated up inside and might need servicing. I suggest not to keep using the TV as this might damage more parts.

Tv goes blank for few seconds while playing games


Sounds Like the graphics chip is starting to go. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

No input signal


Check connections, Hertz rate, and settings (if you can read them). Otherwise, it may be time to whip out the cash and get a new monitor and/or computer.

Screen periodically goes blank for about a second


This is probably the VPU resetting itself. The radeons have the option in the control panel for allowing the VPU to reboot itself if it hangs. Could be a sign of insufficient juice from the PSU or insufficient airflow allowing the card to get too hot. I had to change my cheap 550W PSU to a better quality 500W unit to get enough current (amps) on the 12V rail for my AMD CPU and radeon cards. Cheaper PSUs tend to have high current 3V3 and 5V rails but poor 12V capability.

Game


We have this same issue with this game, and at least one other. Sometimes it's a black screen and sometimes it hangs at the screen where you're supposed to push "a" to start. I've found that if I hard boot the system (pull the power cable from the back for a few seconds) a few times, it will finally work.
